MATCH TIME: WHERE TO WATCH EURO 2024 IN ABU DHABI

All the action is coming to screens across Abu Dhabi as three-time winners Germany stage the UEFA European Championship in 2024.

Who has qualified? The 6 groups are listed below if you want to see who your team will be facing off against in the group stage! 


So, where can you catch every minute of the Euros action across the city? We’ve done the hard work for you, and rounded up the top venues - and top deals - that will make this 2024 Euro Cup one to remember.
